Re: QX6700 on Stock Cooling

Either of them easier/better for mounting, particularly on the Striker?

Re: QX6700 on Stock Cooling

The Ultra 120 is supposed to be good but I've never seen it in a decent review comparison with the Tuniq or Infinity. It doesn't come with a fan or fan speed controller either. Doesn't really matter though because if you were getting the Tuniq or Infinity I'd recommend grabing two 3rd party adjustable speed high CFM fans anyway.

For example alpha the anandtech reviews. I really don't like anandtechs style of testing. There graphs are hard to interprit the exact methods of testing and the fans used.

eg, it's not surprising that the Ultra 120 with a S-Flex 64 CFM fan out performs the Tuniq Tower 120 with what I assume to be it's stock fan. Does it not occur to them that they need to use the same fan on each cooler for it to be comparable???



One thing T_M, I just got the ASUS P5N-E SLI 650i and there is a problem with mounting the Tuniq because of the capacitors around socket. You can only have it in one orientation and even then it seems to be resting on some capacitors.
Not sure how close the design is to the Striker though but you might want to check it out first.

Re: QX6700 on Stock Cooling

No need for the standard fan or fan speed controllers.
Ill only use it with 6.8W Sunons

Looking at clearances etc, the Tuniq seems a winner, especially given my super tall RAM

Re: QX6700 on Stock Cooling

actually if you talk about clearance height from the bottom of heatsink, the scythe infinity has ~5mm extra clearance over tuniq tower

But i never used tuniq on striker, only scythe infinity.

Backside of striker cpu socket area is pretty empty besides the 6 raised points for the Asus cool thingy http://i4memory.com/reviewimages/mot...riker_132.html

Re: QX6700 on Stock Cooling

Yeah photos can be deceiving but the fact is the scythe infinity is a taller and bigger heatsink then tuniq tower!

before you get infinity read my mod i did for it on striker http://i4memory.com/showthread.php?t=3469

heatpipes may get in the way on removal of heatsink

Scythe Infinity mounting mod pictures on Asus 680i Striker Extreme. With the Asus 680i Striker Extreme heatpipes around the area I suspect it will be hard to remove heatsinks which use intel's plastic white peg mechanisms, so I did the mod outlined at http://www.xtremesystems.org/forums/...d.php?t=117054 and plucked out the pegs and used bolts and nuts and plastic washers on back side etc

Here you see before and after plucking the pegs out and the short bolts I grabbed off 3x Swiftech MCP650/655 pump kits which were used to mount the pumps. I used the black rubber washers to secure the bolts top side too



Final mounting mechanism on Asus 680i Striker Extreme with tall white spacers + flat round spacer on top with the nut to secure it. Tightened a bit too tight first time as the motherboard didn't boot up, so loosened it a bit and booted fine



For folks asking, does the Scythe Infinity fit on Asus 680i Striker Extreme ? Answer is yes it clears the heatpiped heatsinks easily as the heatpiped heatsinks are ~4cm tall and Scythe Infinity has a clearance height of ~4.5cm

And as you can see heatsink doesn't go anywhere near dimm slots so flexXLC heatsinks should be fine.

Re: QX6700 on Stock Cooling

these qx6700s really are amazing chips,

finally got a chance to sit down with mine tonight and get aquanted,

no voltage changes, stock cooler, went straight to 266 * 12, then started clockgen and took fsb up in 5mhz increments and it went to 3550ish wprime stable, clock gen up further to 3720 (310 * 12) which was superpi stable, idle core temperatures are starting to look 65ish at 3720 a little high... 3550mhz wprime took a couple cores right up to 89 degrees...

looks like under water might be able to run this chip at 3.5-3.6ghz every day clocks, probably sitting 47-52degrees idle...

looking forward to seeing how you go with yours tm!
